Motiv Cracking
« on: December 07, 2022, 07:23:53 AM »
I know this was a topic a good while back but I was wondering if anyone has been experiencing any cracking lately and if this is still an issue with Motiv balls? I've just recently started using Motiv and I haven't had any issues but a guy in one of our leagues had a Motiv Venom Shock crack or separate around the logo. Is this still a problem with Motiv?

I've only seen motive crack around their logos, but not their fingers like storm stuff.

The logo is exactly where this ball cracked. It's weird to see a ball crack there.

I have had them crack in the fingers, like from finger hole to pin and then all the way around and also along the logo from separation of the logo and the rest of the cover.

I'm actually using the first VIP limited edition ball that was heading toward a bad crack from a separation around the logo. My proshop guy drilled out the small area and plugged it and it's as good as new. So, if you catch it on a ball that can't be replaced before the crack spreads, it can be repaired.

Itís a problem with any manufacturerís equipment. None are exempt from cracking.

I know most if not all manufactures have a cracking problem but, cracking around the logo seems to be a bit odd, don't you think?

It's unique to Motiv. The logo is made into the cover, not engraved

Is it cracking or just separating a little around the logo?  I little separation will not harm the performance of the bowling ball. That, too, can be repaired if it bothers you.

It has separated and cracked between the logo.

Iíve had several Motiv balls crack (although Iíve heard about cracking of every brand) and usually itís ball that I havenít used in a while. A pro shop operator told me to pick them up and bang them together every month or so. The cracks Iíve seen have been equatorial.

"...pick them up and bang them together every month of so..." ???

Now I have heard everything.
